ATR to install a new Full Flight Simulator in Toulouse

Posted 1 February 2018 · Add Comment

ATR, will add a brand new Full Flight Simulator (FFS) to its Toulouse Training Center.

Manufactured by CAE, this new simulator will allow crew members to receive training on the ATR 72-600.

Based at ATR headquarters, this simulator will be both EASA and FAA-certified. It will enable ATR to provide its customers and operators with an extended capacity for training, with 4,500 additional training hours per year. It will start operations as of July 2018.

This extension is in line with ATR’s customer support strategy to provide easy access to optimised pilot training solutions for its customers worldwide. ATR recently equipped its Paris Training Center with an ATR 72-600 FFS, and ATR’s Toulouse Training Center is already equipped with simulators to support ATR 42-300/500, 72-200/500, and the latest ATR 72-600 variant.

Tom Anderson, Senior Vice-President Programs and Customer Services of ATR, said: “The gradual extension of ATR’s training capacity is our key contribution to solving the global pilot shortage. We are committed to support our customers’ and operators’ forthcoming expansion plans, and will continue to add training capacity, as global demand requires it, for us to remain the regional leader worldwide.”

Today, ATR has five training centers in Toulouse, Paris, Johannesburg, Singapore and Miami.
